Have you heard about the Iranian worm?

Recently a worm infected an Iranian computer that was used for work with uranium. People have been suspected that the US government and Israel have cooperated to create this worm. I don't blame them for this, but there is one problem.

This worm could spread. We could have to deal with it on this forum and help normal computers fix a superworm. Worse still, we would be fighting a creation of the US government, and that could turn out badly.

We should be on our guard.

It will be detected by almost every anti malware app.
Of course also by MBAM

Hello and welcome:

I'm afraid that the MBAM engineers will not provide malware samples to the general public.
This is for security reasons.

Thanks for your understanding,
